My husband and I love The Wild Olive for a date night. The atmosphere is warm and familiar, and the food is fabulous. Our favorites are the ribeye and the filet mignon. The beef is always cooked just right. If I had a complaint, it would be that they're not open for lunch early enough during the school year to... More

We are from Birmingham, Alabama and found the Wild Olive about 3 years ago when traveling to the beach. You might need to get reservations on the weekend. This place is awesome and the food and atmosphere is top notch. Two of my favorites are the stuffed jalapenos and the shrimp and grits. Give this place a try, I'm sure... More

This was our second visit, both visits left us wanting to return. Our visit this trip included a breakfast visit as well as a dinner visit. Food is all prepared to order with a wide selection of choices. Leave room for desert. They do not have alcohol license but will allow you to bring your wine.

The food is always good. You must BYOB. They do not serve wine but they will supply glasses and open a bottle you bring with you. Desserts are excellent.

I visit my family in Crestview often and enjoy eating at the Wild Olive very much. The food is terrific and the prices are good. They are kid friendly and very accommodating to a mid-size group. (we are a family of 8 when we visit). The food is outstanding and kids love it. Very quaint atmosphere and "trendy" for a... More

My brother and his wife came to visit in February 2017 and we took them for breakfast here and, as usual, it was delicious. They loved everything! In fact, I do not personally know of anyone who has had a bad meal or unpleasant dining experience at the Wild Olive. I returned with a friend for breakfast on March 4,... More

Breakfast is so good and the wait staff is amazing. Get the shrimp and grits, or chicken and waffles, or anything else. It's the best place in town for breakfast hands down

I was here a few years ago and must have caught them on a rare bad night because the food was great and the service was top notch. The calamari appetizer was great and the special chicken dish was amazing.

Traveling to Pensacola and decided to stop here for a late lunch solely based on their high reviews. We arrived 15 minutes prior to lunch closing. Two diners plus the two of us. We were seated at the table right in front of the two bathrooms and requested any other table but the bathroom table. All other tables were of... More

A delightful little place with an interesting menu and very nice, attentive staff. Everyone in our party of six enjoyed what we ordered. Wish I had had room for dessert as they looked great too!
